New Skate Game! Skater XL
« on: December 07, 2018, 01:45:13 PM »
I've been lurking here for years but I finally made an account to share this because I haven't seen it posted yet. A new skate game is coming to PC and it's getting an early access release on Steam December 19th. Made by the guys who made the Skater mobile app.

They had a little press release come out here too: https://variety.com/2018/gaming/news/skater-xl-steam-early-access-1203083983/

I was about to post this! You know the funny thing is, I backed Session and hated it's controls but gave it another try this month and finally started to enjoy it, and now this game comes out. I was aware of this game too however but had no idea it would be out so soon and it looks great for early access! I'm excited :)

By the way I could have sworn Koston was attached to this project? Didn't they have a video with him before or was that another game?

different game! that was True Skate: Big Screen, which was supposed to be the console/pc version of the mobile app True Skate. Nothing ever came of that, at least there hasn't been any public updates on the development in the last like two years.

The animations and the way the character moves looks very reminiscent of the skate games to me.

Cool to see there are a lot of people working on skate games that are NEVER going to come out

Looks like itīs coming. Definitely going to check that out even if it becomes an early access cash grab like a lot of games these days.

I trust Nightspeeds's take on the game. At least with this West LA courthouse level the studio knocked it out of the park.

Wow that actually looks like a really fun simulation. Looks like you can control how the tricks look really precisely.

I've been playing it for the last hour or so.  Needs some work of course (still early access) but I'm liking it quite a bit. It's definitely better than Session(as it is now) imo. You can control how your tricks look more and it's also a lot smoother.

20$ for an alpha? Gonna wait 6 month to get on this if it gets better. The best part so far is for it to be a PC game.

I used OBS Studio which is free.

Same, I'm having a lot of fun with it! I think it's worth the $20

the fact that blunts and noseblunts look "bad" is a good thing in a way. it makes me hope that you can tweak how all of this look which is exciting.

BUT is it possible to get a good looking blunt ?
